Fall Is In the Air

Today the prince had a school field trip to the pumpkin patch. The princess and I went along. It's a great place outside of town with all kinds of animals! It was quite chilly this morning, but you can't really go to the PUMPKIN PATCH when it's warm out, can you? It should be brisk and crisp outside!

The kids were able to hand feed the goats. They got to see a camel and a buffalo--yes, a camel and a buffalo. They climbed on the requisite mound of pumpkins, took a hayride, and picked out their own little pumpkin to bring home. Most of the pumpkins were mid-size, but the prince picked out a cute little pumpkin that fit in the palm of his hand. I asked him why he picked a little pumpkin and he said, "I couldn't carry the big pumpkins, I couldn't even carry the medium pumpkins, so I picked a little pumpkin." Can't argue with that logic!

SPC--Week 4--Food and Me--After Food

During this entire month's SPC, I've really tried to tie my pictures into how I feel about food at any given time. Today, food means dishes, clean-up, more work. I remember the days when I didn't have a dishwasher and my deal was, "If I just had a dishwasher, my kitchen would always be clean." Yeah, right.

So here it is....a picture of how I feel about food today. I need to invest in more disposable dishes, utensils, etc.

Note to self: do NOT take a self portrait from the back, again!

SPC--Week3--Food and Me--Comfort

I've been sick--runny nose, achy body, deep-chest cough. I'm getting better now, but took this picture the other day when all I wanted to eat was the ol' standby--chicken noodle soup.

Gotta Have It!

My SIL, Erin, made this FANTASTIC necklace for me and I love it! I wanted to take a picture of it today and had The Prince (who's only 4) do it for me!

You can find yours HERE!

The other day, while taking pictures of one of my outfits, the kids decided they were in the mood to pose. It was so much fun AND, I got some of the best pictures of them! I look at these and feel my heart overflow with know, the honest-to-goodness feeling that your heart is just not big enough to hold all that you feel for your children? The feeling that only your children can cause? My cup runs over.....

SPC--Week 1--What Will It Be?

Here it is--my first attempt at the Self Portrait Challenge. This month's theme: Food & Me! Well, I have plenty to say about that! I love food! Really, I get a lot of enjoyment not only from eating good food, but also from preparing it. With an Italian husband, from a typical Italian family, food is important! When I think about the pictures I could take depicting the role of food in my life, I realize that I'll have a difficult time choosing just four!

This week I titled my photo, "What Will It Be?" I feel like I spend more time than is appropriate standing in front of my pantry trying to decide what will be me....for dinner....for my kids' snacks. This is also where I stand while trying to figure out our grocery list and where we throw away our trash. I'm thinking I need a chair!

Finally, a last little peek into my life....the blur in the bottom corner (aka my son). There are few things I can do in life right now that won't include my children in some way!
